Manufacturing is changing. That statement has always held true. But now, more than ever, we are seeing new technologies, new demands, and new ways of thinking with regards to the factory of the future. These new demands include shorter part runs, cheaper products, and increased flexibility on the shop floor—all while dealing with a manufacturing labor crisis.
At PBC Linear, we have been addressing these demands with our Factory of the Future Program. This includes our new brand, Applied Cobotics, which provides our customers with new automation tools and training solutions designed to increase safety and productivity, and sharpen their manufacturing competitive edge. Most importantly, these upgrades can be implemented with a high return on investment, making even the smallest shops fully eligible for this Industry 4.0 technology.
